How We Care for Your Mental Health


Anxiety, Depression, and Stress Relief

For those who suffer from anxiety, depression or stress, Hado Health has a message: You are not alone, and we are here to help. Read on to find out how Hado Health treats these emotional conditions, so our patients can enjoy healthy and fulfilled lives.

How Can Hado Health Help You?

Unfortunately, many people suffer from stress, anxiety, or depression. If you are one of them, please know that there is help for these conditions, outside of or together with pharmaceuticals. We are happy to say we have had great success relieving Hado Health patients of mental health challenges. As an acupuncturist, PSYCH-K® practitioner, and creator of Hado Water, Minerva will create each patient’s custom treatment plan and work to restore the well being of his or her body, mind, and spirit.

What is the process?

We usually start off with acupuncture sessions. Acupuncture improves blood flow throughout the body, which oxygenates the tissues and washes out cortisol and other waste chemicals. This improves overall well-being and is just one way in which we address stress, anxiety, and depression.

A patient’s customized treatment plan could also include PSYCH-K® sessions or custom made Hado Water. Minerva may recommend Chinese herbs, homeopathic injections, or other Eastern Medicine modalities in conjunction with acupuncture. The Hado Health team has found all of these modalities to be highly effective when overcoming stress, anxiety, and other mental health challenges.

Eastern Medicine Treats Emotional Problems


Acupuncture and our other modalities are used to increase the body’s overall sense of well being, while diminishing or alleviating the physical symptoms of anxiety, including:

  • Digestive issues

  • Headache

  • Insomnia

  • Rapid heartbeat and breathing issues

Acupuncture is excellent for those with severe anxiety, as they will experience diminished anxiety symptoms immediately or soon after the first appointment. Patients also usually experience additional benefits such as better sleep and improved stress management.


Whether a patient is suffering from acute (short term) or chronic (ongoing) depression, acupuncture can help. It is also valuable in treating the underlying physical pain that is sometimes the cause of depression. Most patients report that both physical symptoms (like insomnia or poor appetite) and emotional feelings of depression begin to fade soon after treatment begins. Acupuncture has enabled some of our patients to reduce the dosage of anti-depressants, though we always recommend speaking to your doctor before altering your pharmaceutical treatment.


Acupuncture patients experience almost immediate feelings of calm and relaxation, as acupuncture stimulates the brain to release natural happy hormones called endorphins. As a result, acupuncture is very effective for stress management. Whether your stress is ongoing or is related to a specific situation, acupuncture offers relief. Treatment may also taper stress-related issues as high blood pressure, headaches, and musculo-skeletal tightness.
